Freekibble and Freekibble Kat were launched in 2008, as the vision of then 11-year-old Mimi Ausland. Mimi wanted to feed the homeless pets at her local shelter. “There are tens of thousands of dogs and cats in animal shelters across the country, all needing to be fed a good meal.” With this in mind, Freekibble was created. Since then, we’ve donated over 18 million meals to homeless dogs and cats in shelters and food banks across the country!
In 2013, we introduced Freekibble Cares which features monthly causes that support all sorts of different animals in need, and the people that work so hard to care for them.
In 2014, we added Free Kat Litter. Shelters go through millions of pounds of cat litter every year. By donating litter to shelters, they can spend the money saved on caring for cats… and getting them adopted!
Today, the Freekibble Network reaches over 500,000 passionate pet-lovers, with over 140,000 daily combined visitors from 157 countries. This loyal community has helped us feed and care for 100’s of thousands of animals in need.
Special thanks to our kibble sponsor, Halo, Purely for Pets, and our litter sponsor, Fresh Step. Because of these awesome sponsors, we’re able to donate the highest quality food and litter, for happier, healthier pets while they wait for their forever homes.
All of us at Freekibble are committed to Mimi’s original dream that “Every dog and cat deserves a decent dinner”. And, we’re dedicated to the primary mission of feeding and caring for as many shelter pets as we possibly can.
Thanks to everyone for helping donate food and litter to animal shelters and supporting Freekibble Cares causes – it all makes a difference!
